Digital assets inflows near $1 billion

Digital asset funds recorded consecutive inflows last week with $932 million in net inflows i.e., a 619% increase from last week's $130 million inflows, according to data from Coinshares.

Generally, increased fund inflows in an asset signify investor confidence and a potential price increase.

The increased inflows were triggered after the US reported on Wednesday that CPI only increased by a softer-than-expected 0.3%, indicating progress towards the Federal Reserve's 2% target. 89% of the reported total flows came in the last three days of the week after the CPI data release.

Bitcoin accounted for a large chunk of total flows, with over $942 million in inflows. Solana and Chainlink also recorded inflows of $4.9 million and $3.7 million, respectively. Ethereum, on the other hand, recorded outflows of nearly $23 million following bearish sentiments last week regarding spot ETH ETF approval.

However, things are turning positive for the digital asset this week following rumors that the SEC is set to approve the ETFs as the May 23 deadline approaches.

By region, the US dominated with more than $1 billion in inflows. Canada continued seeing outflows for the second consecutive week, with about $17 million in outflows. Hong Kong saw outflows of $82.5 million, indicating the debut of Bitcoin and Ethereum ETFs in the region may not be worth the hype.

Total volumes across global ETFs also slightly increased from $8 billion to $10.5 billion last week. However, it's still miles below the $40 billion volume seen in March.

With the market opening the week on a positive note on Monday, global ETFs may record even more increased inflows.
